Class in America - How to Get the Conversation Started
Class is one of the divisions in American society that we don't talk about but should. In this workshop, we'll confront issues of class, understand hidden class biases and discriminations, and talk about how to deal with it. Through journaling, discussion, videos, and creative projects, we'll explore what class really means in America, how it affects life choices, politics, etc.
There will be no outside reading or homework for this class.
Room 614, Social Sciences Building, UM West Bank MN
